8 Countercultural Decisions to Find Financial Freedom

Written by Joshua Becker

Financial advice abounds everywhere we look. It is not difficult to discover. And yet, the statistics paint an ugly picture that it may not be working so well. The average American family still holds $6,700 in credit card debt and  76% live paycheck-to-paycheck.

Unfortunately, most people think more money is the answer. And while there may be some truth to this solution, most of us would readily admit that our most basic needs (food, shelter, and clothing) are financially covered. It appears then that most of our financial troubles are not based in need, but in cultural expectations—that because we live in a society based almost entirely on consumption and the promotion of it, we have too subtly bought into the lies and built our lives upon them far more than we realize.

Perhaps, then, the pathway to financial freedom requires a bolder, more countercultural approach. One that intentionally begins to question the messages we believe and looks elsewhere for answers. To that end, consider this list of 8 Bold, Countercultural Decisions to Find Financial Freedom. Purchase based on necessity, not possibility. ...

  • Never carry a car payment. ...
  • In dual-income households, don't spend the lesser income. ...
  • Avoid alcohol. ...
  • Never retire. ...
  • Pay with cash. ...
  • Give away (at least) 10%. ...
  • Put the spender in charge of family finances.

I am excited about this series and I pray that many small business owners will benefit from it!
